IVResearch Programs and Services A. Research Projects: Schools and Classes B. Doctoral Dissertations Research and/or Demonstration Projects in Schools and Classes for the Deaf Listed in this section are current (1985-86) research and/or demonstration projects reported by schools and classes for the deaf in the United States and Canada.

ECIA: Chapter 1 Projects funded through the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act (ECIA) — Chapter I, State Agency Program : Handicapped — are listed below. This act supplanted the legislation stemming from Part B, Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 (P.L. 8910 ), as amended by P.L. 89-313, authorizing aid to state agencies operating or supporting schools for handicapped children. Since 1965, various amendments to the act have resulted in the following series of laws: P.L. 90-247, P.L. 91230 , P.L. 93-380 and P.L. 95-561. In addition to the identified "projects," 49 schools or classes indicated that they used ECIA: Chapter I funding for providing supplemental services , supplies, or equipment to hearing-impaired students, although they did not specify project title or components.
